Heart to Heart
A disciple relates an incident about young Charan Singh’s love for his Master. When he was only ten or eleven years old, he went to the Great Master one day after returning from school and bowed at his feet, almost embracing them. The Great Master lovingly patted him on the back and said, “Son, I am very pleased with you. Ask for anything and I will give it to you.” He replied, “I have nothing to ask for.” The Great Master said once again, “Ask! Whatever you want you shall have.” When the boy made the same reply and the Great Master repeated the question, Charan Singh replied, “I only want you – nothing but you.” The Great Master’s face lit up, and with pleasure he said, “Yes, my son, you shall have me.”
Heaven on Earth
We returned to the Rhine and continued along it to Bonn, the German capital. We stayed in a hotel for the night. The next morning, it was slightly drizzling; we wanted to go to the garden show in Bonn. As we pulled off, Hazur Maharaj Ji settled down in his seat and remarked, “Ah, fine weather!”
“How can you say that? It’s wet,” we retorted.
“It could be pouring,” was the optimistic reply and so typical of him throughout the trip. We weren’t allowed to say anything negative; he would immediately find something positive about it, which would always result in a burst of happy laughter.
